A boiler safety certificate is for a gas boiler in rented properties. The boiler safety certificate shows a record of your boiler, gas pipe work and whether your boiler meets gas safety standards. It is a legal requirement for UK landlords to arrange for gas safe engineers to visit your home annually.
Getting your boiler checked and/or maintained by a Gas Safe registered engineer is extremely crucial. This is to prevent gas related accidents, faulty gas appliances and to keep your home safe. UK landlords are legally obliged to have their boiler and other gas appliances checked every year. It is their full responsibility to acquire a gas engineer for all gas works and inspections. Only Gas Safe engineers must complete a safety certificate. The certificate must be given to the landlord. He/she must provide a copy of the safety certificate to their tenant(s), within 28 days of checks/work completion.
Safety checks are a must! Natural gases such as carbon monoxide can cause gas poisoning. Carbon monoxide is a natural gas that is transparent in taste, smell, and colour. Almost 30 people die each year from carbon monoxide poisoning, due to unsafe boilers and incompletion of a safety certificate. Landlords who do not have their boiler checked and a safety certificate will face imprisonment for manslaughter, should their tenants die from gas poisoning. If you are a landlord, but unsure what your legal responsibilities are, call us for more information.
